Work and Wellbeing Day 2020

With covid and Brexit impacting on workers' mental health, this year's Work and Wellbeing Day, now being held online on Friday 16 October, focuses on the health and wellbeing of employers and employees.

As businesses get back up and running, employers are working out what the “new normal” looks like for their business and workforce.  Some are back in the workplace, others working from home or part of the Chancellor’s flexi-working scheme.  Whatever the situation everyone has been affected by covid.  Employers and employees need support to adjust and now we have Brexit looming.  WayfinderWoman’s online Work and Wellbeing Day on Friday 16 October from 10.00 – 1.30pm has six well-known speakers giving practical insights into how we can all better cope with the situation facing us whilst protecting our mental health.  Each will talk for 15-20 minutes followed by a Q&A.

  • Victoria Regan, Rix & Kay explores the steps that can be taken to support the health, safety and wellbeing of the workforce.
  • Christina Ewbank, CEO, Eastbourne Unltd considers ways that you can maintain control whilst dealing with uncertainty.
  • Nicola McCarthy, gives personal insights into the world of work for those who suffer with mental health issues.
  • Katie Day, rdp International will explore how employers can support women in midlife.
  • Steve Collins, Freedom Leisure takes you through some simple  strategies and exercises to improve your mental and  physical health.
  • Laura Murphy, mtc2 ltd will end the day by exploring how you can think with ease.
